Hi everybody ; I've been trying QTractor and I really like the way it works. The Problem is the way *I* work ; Every time I stumble onto things when trying to quickly make a drums track, say for a rehearsal.
I'd like to know the easiest & quickest way to lay down a drum track in QTractor
Then I can create a midi clip in that track, and each piano key would be a drum element..?
This is more of a "work flow" question : I would like to be able to launch a QTractor session, activate generic, pre-defined tracks for all present instruments (say Bass, Guitar, and lead vocal) - this part I have, by the way, and it works great - and then have a "drums" track handy where I just create a clip and click-click-click-click, this is the HH, click-click-click-click, this is the Bass drum, click-click this is the Snare, loop that and party.
Ideally, it would then be easy to switch sounds, either individually or the whole drum kit.
Ideally, all those drums sounds "slots" would have a pan pot so I can balance them
I'd like to avoid using hydrogen, because 1-My brain is not big enough for two apps, one of which is an host for other apps..?! (oh and both top-level apps would be sequencers, aarg no) 2-Nor is my RAM ; Hydrogen is failing on me today (yesterday it worked flawlessly on the same setup) segfaults and then says "jack: Audio driver not loaded" I think it's a memory problem because QTractor himself says "Cannot lock down memory area (Cannot allocate memory)" at each launch.
PS - Is a Dual-core intel (says 2Ghz) with only One Gig of RAM a possible setup or should I stop right away ?
